get to the super bowl next time? >> mindy is in seattle along side ray with where the team goes from here. >> the 49ers have reached the nfc championship three straight years under jim harbaugh and reaching the super bowl once. they get the regular season record, make it to the playoffs, the 49ers have a difficult time finishing the games and finishing the job when they need to. what do you take from that? >> that they are almost but not quite truly elite. they won 41 games in three years which is an extra to ordinarily difficult task but when the chips are on the table you can't play one half. you are measured in the postseason by what you do against the best teams in football. and three times now in their final game they have not been able to play a complete game. and frankly, in a world where you are graded very harshly you have to come up bigger than they
do at games like this. >> where does the team go from here? there will be changes made in the off season. what will be key for san francisco to get back to the super bowl? >> i think their defense is fine. it's the elite part of this team. but they have to figure out a way it new rely on it to save them and the games after games after games where they only get two touchdowns. this is a high powered league now. you've got to be able to put points on the board and they don't do that often enough. 23 is not often enough. they have to get more creative offensively, get colin kaepernick to be more precise as a passer, and they have got to be either to figure out how to get frank gore so he doesn't have difficult games like this or get a running back who can be as good as marshawn lynch is game in and game out. >> a difficult loss after a solid 12-4 regular season. ray, thanks for a great season.
hopefully next year we'll have other positive things in the playoffs to talk about. >> thanks, guys. 49ers may have to fill on defense for the start of the season is that of linebacker that strar ro bowman. he suffered a serious knee injury. if you watched, this is hard to watch. i don't watch it. early reports say it appeared bowman tore his acl. he will likely need surgery. in an amazing feat he grabbed the ball from the receiver. it was san francisco's ball, then everything went wrong. the receiver pushed into bowman's leg. the linebacker down on the ground several minutes, had to be carted from the field. then to add insult to literal injury though it was obvious he had recovered the ball the referees ruled seattle retained possession. >> got robbed. player getting the most attention stanford grad and seattle cornerback richard
sherman. he is criticized for comments about michael crabtree. the two went head-to-head. and with time winding down sherman was able to tip a pass intended for crabtree in the end zone. the pass was intercepted sealing the win for the seahawks. emotional sherman had some not so kind words for crabtree. >> i'm the best one in the game. that's the result you're going to get. >> sherman didn't back down. he even after some time to collect his thoughts while at the podium during post game interviews he took another opportunity to reiterate his feelings. >> knew that crabtree was a mediocre receiver. mediocre. and when you try the best corner in the became a mediocre receiver that's what happens. >> come on. well, after the game michael crabtree had little to say about sherman but later on twitter replied quote film don't lie.
pull up the tape of the game and show me where this guy is the best? hash tag take, take, take. >> we all look forward to watching the broncos crush sherman. let's check in. >> yes. go broncos. >> i'm not going to give you a mediocre forecast. i'll tell you that much. >> and guess what, it's going to be a lot nicer here. it's going to be in seattle today, mr. sherman. 39 to start the day in oakland. 41 in san jose. 46 in san francisco. we're starting out nice and kind of chilly. we're still going to hit highs above average if you wanted to get outdoors. i'm saying this is good news because there is significant rainfall in sight. the storm window will be opening, i know, rejoice as we head to the end of the month. we need the rain. the governor of the state of california declared a state of emergency, jerry brown, last
